Our theme this term is:

The Time Machine

Children will be leading their own learning and therefore have contributed their own ideas into our class mind map.


Tedi Teithio (The travelling Teddy) will introduce and inspire the children to work on the following topics:

  • My family and I.

  • Past / present / future.

  • Homes over time.

  • Materials and their properties.

  • The seasons (Autumn and Winter).

  •  A range of different celebrations including Harvest, Bonfire night, Christmas.

  •  Christmas Traditions over the years. 

    *A clear emphasis will be put on giving them a basic and wider Welsh vocabulary and getting them to enjoy communicating and playing through the medium of Welsh. 

     Please see Literacy and Numeracy framework on the school website for a detailed outlook of the skills that will be covered. 


Homework – Autumn Term 2019 - Reception

This term our theme is based on Delicious. We would like you to take ownership of your homework over the next Half Term. Below is a table from which you can choose tasks. You should complete one language, one maths and one creative task during the Half Term, completing one task every two weeks. 

You can complete more than three tasks should you wish but we only expect three to be submitted, you can also use the ‘Homework’ tab on the school website should you wish to do any extra spelling or maths homework.
